Editorial Reviews


"I am happy that the co-operation between the National Security Archive in Washington and the Czech foundation, Prague Spring 1968, has resulted in this voluminous collection of documents which, I hope, will lead readers to a closer understanding of the dramatic events that the then Czechoslovakia lived through three decades ago." -- Vclav Havel, President of the Czech Republic, 1998

"The Prague Spring '68 helps answer the question of why the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia as it had Hungary, while it overlooked insubordination elsewhere." -- New York Times, 1998

"This work, the first to document the invasion of Czechoslovakia from the viewpoints of the nations of the Iron Curtain and the West, is a spectacular contribution to the area of political studies. Indeed this work is a tribute to the unification of the Czech and Slovak peoples against a force which greatly outnumbered them in manpower and outweighed them in sheer strength...this work is a must for scholars of political and social studies, as well as for historians. However, the non-scholar is equally important when one looks at the scope of the historical and political content of this immense effort." -- Slavic and East European Journal, 1999
